About GRI

The GRI Standards represent as the world’s most widely-used and is the oldest standards for reporting a Company’s sustainability practices, achievements, as well as impacts to related stakeholders. Having been developed through multi-stakeholder contributions, they are founded in the interest of the wider public, reflecting the ever-growing expectations amongst stakeholders and, indeed, from society as a whole for businesses to conduct themselves in a responsible manner. Currently, almost three-quarters of the 250 biggest companies worldwide are now using GRI standards or guidelines, while almost 170 policies in just under 70 countries worldwide make reference to the Standards are demand their use.

Enabling companies to report publicly the impact that their activities are having in a transparent and structured way, the Standards assist businesses in indicating their positive contributions towards the goal of sustainable development. Their aim is to facilitate the public disclosure of an organisation’s significant environmental, social, and economic impacts and, thus, its contributions towards wider overall sustainable development goals. While also facilitating the public with transparent information according to the nine principles of GRI reporting. These principles include accurate quantitative data, balanced and unbiased disclosure, clarity and readability, comparability within three past years’ practices, complete and thorough story, verifiable statement, committed publication time, and beyond, all from sustainability and a long-term impact point of view.

All types of organisations are able to benefit from the use of the GRI Standards, which allow information users and stakeholders alike to have a clear understanding of what organisations can be expected to report upon in terms of sustainability. Equipped with the information supplied under the Standards, they can examine the impact of the business and compare it with that of other companies. The comparability aspect of GRI standard principles benefits stakeholders to see the company’s commitment in reducing negative impacts and strengthening value over the past three years. They can clearly see from the information that has been reported how the company is integrating development sustainability into its long-term strategy in order to evaluate its success in the long run and pinpoint any potential financial risks that could be incurred.

Thanks to the information supplied by the organisation, other information users like policymakers, academics, and analysts can also be better informed when forming policies, researching and benchmarking. Furthermore, the organisation itself can use its disclosed information in order to further assess its strategies and policies and to guide its future decision-making processes, for example setting targets and goals.
